Sitting alone at the Ugly Mug, polishing my bon mots

The show’s about 24 hours away now, and we’re all busy tying down loose ends. I shot this short video last night before we rehearsed. I’m not sure why it’s so shaky at the beginning. I don’t remember being terrified, or jittery. Maybe the new Flip camera has a Parkinson’s setting that I’m not aware of… At any rate, the practice went well, and I’m pretty confident that tomorrow night’s show, at the very least, won’t suck… Doors at Dreamland open at 7:00, and the show begins at 8:00. I hope to see you there.

    It’s sad how bad celebrity appearances are the universal harbinger’s of a series’ demise.

    I’ll miss the Dreamland. And here I thought they were still in their prime.

    Wow, how long has the Mug allowed bongs?

    I’m envious. I haven’t had my bon mots polished in years.

    Too bad you weren’t polishing your Mon bots (little robots from Burma). A stage full of puppets, tiny pets and robots would be totally awesome.

    And, yes, HKL, that’s exactly when the A Team jumped the shark — not when Mr. T made the cannon that shot cabbages, debilitating an entire army of baddies.

    You even have “applause” signs? Very professional.

    Steven,

    It made me feel sick, too, and I didn’t even press play.

    $5 to anyone who steps in front of the puppet and says, “Ima let you finish, but….”
